Here 'tis...

Pulled this week's random ten from a subdirectory full of blues, folk and country mostly from the first half of the 20th century. Maybe it's a bit of a shame they don't write 'em like that anymore, but it's a blessing they don't record 'em like that anymore. Amazing how much good stuff shines through those old shellacs, though...
The Sunshine Boys - What's The Matter With Deep Elem?
Josh White - Midnight Special
Elizabeth Cotton - Shake Sugaree
Tex Williams & His Western Caravan - I Got Texas In My Soul
Cowboy Copas - Alabam
Red Foley - Tennessee Saturday Night
The Almanac Singers - The Sinking Of The Reuben James
Memphis Jug Band - Sun Brimmer's Blues
Delta Rhythm Boys - Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me
Charlie Poole & the North Carolina Ramblers - Goodbye Booze
